Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2015
Didn't get much lime flavor out of this- primary taste was oregano which seems Mediterranean to me.Need al ittle more sauce. We liked it and probably would make again.

Buffalo Chicken and Roasted Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2015
I bought pre-cooked bacon to save another step. I had some Frank's wing sauce leftover from another recipes so I used that instead of making the Tabasco mixture in the recipe. I used a 1/2 cup ( that was ok, but next time I will use a full cup) along with olive oil. This was very good and I especially love the roasted potatoes.

Momma's Healthy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2015
Loved it! I had 1 1/4 lbs meat and scaled the other ingredients up. I had never used extra lean beef before(my store has 96% ), but the veggies make this so moist and full of flavor. My husband raved about this and he doesn't like most meatloaf recipes. Will definitely make this again. Great as a leftover for sandwiches. Husband doesn't like sandwiches that much but he loved this meatloaf as a sandwich. We froze leftover slices for sandwiches.

Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 12, 2015
One of us liked it but overall it was not a hit in my house. I think it needed more seasoning.

Smoked Sausage with Potatoes, Sauerkraut & Ale

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2015
I had an extra package of sauerkraut I needed to use up and chose this recipe. So glad I did. So easy, not many ingredients and everyone loved it. The ale is such a good idea.

Grain-Free Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
I had some almond flour left over from a dessert recipe and was looking for a main dish that used it as an ingredient. Made exactly as written- everyone liked it. Very easy too.

Polish Sausage and Pierogy Haluski

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2015
This was delicious and easy to prepare. However, I'm not sure about the directions as written, so I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. I have what I consider a "large skillet" , but for the life of me I don't know how I could "push aside the cabbage/onion kielbasa" and put all the pierogy on the bottom of the pan. I had to take it out of the skillet entirely. Also, cooking them in the skillet for 20 minutes would probably burn them. I cooked everything for less time than stated. I think you do need some of the beef broth, but maybe not the full cup.

Kale, White Bean, and Farro Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
A very healthy and hearty soup. I didn't use a blender to puree the beans- they are very easily mashed. This recipe has a little bit too much pepper for my taste, but we liked this and will make again.

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
Nice and easy. I added capers and additional lemon juice but it's not really necessary. Will make again.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
Outstanding- the best apple crisp I've had. I didn't measure the apples. I just filled a glass 13x9 dish (size in the recipe) almost to the top. I had a combination of apples, including many McIntosh, which tend to be more watery. Also used Crispin and Spartan varieties because that's what I had. I cut the water in half, but using the full amount in the recipe probably would not do harm- especially if using apples other than McIntosh. I don't know why people are complaining of so much liquid after baking. The recipe calls for 1 cup + flour which should absorb liquid.- maybe they didn't follow the recipe. The recipe is not too sweet if you use enough fruit, as a 13X9 pan implies. Some people are using 5 apples or peaches . That is not going to make 10 cups or even fill the pan.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2014
This was very good for a change but I found I prefer savory vs. sweet salmon. I served this with butternut squash risotto. Squah or pumpkin filled ravioli would be good too.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples, Golden Raisins, and Walnuts

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
I didn't have wine, so I substituted a little Balsamic vinegar. Roasted a little longer than stated time. Very creative dish, as well as nutritious. Family raved and asked me to please make again.

Lebanese Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
This was a hit in my family. I would use fresh squeezed lemons and avoid bottled lemon juice. For me, this was 4 good sized lemons. A someone else said- a simple and pure dish. Very easy to prepare- will make again.

Pad Thai

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
I had to triple the sauce. The noodles took much longer to cook than expected, and the ratio of noodles to other ingredients seemed high. Everyone seemd to like it but I don't think I'll make again.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
My mother in law gave me this recipe over 30 years ago when DH and I were newlyweds. Traditionally with peanut butter cookies you make a cross hatch pattern with a fork but this recipe doesn't mention that. I always loved making these becasue of the simple 3 ingredients.

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
If making with vegetable broth, you will need to season well. I used beef broth and it still needed seasoning as others mentioned. I added Worcestershire sauce and paprika. I left out the parsley for personal preference. Everyone liked it- will make again.

Rosenmunnar

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This is a new family favorite. I love that's only 3 simple ingredients plus the jam. The only criticism I have is that I don't think it makes 6 dozen. I got 3. Be careful not to put too much jam or it will run over the cookie.

Delmonico Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
We don't use processed cheese so I substituted mild cheddar. Nice and easy; everyone liked these. I think they could use some seasoning, and maybe breadcrumbs/paprika for color. Will make again.
